aaah, it's AMD's site being shite by requiring a referrer, a malformed archive gets downloaded automatically instead. going the manual route as previously mentioned.

@Thormme : sorry for late answer, are you still there? I was wondering about adding gcc5 dependency and hardocing use of gcc5 inside of the amd's script. However - since I don't have pre-GCN card - I won't be able to properly test it. Can someone test it for me (after I prepare it, i just don't want to waste time on preparation if there will be no interested person)?

I had the exact same problem with the same log output as AwesomeHaircut.
It's not a good solution, but I have a workaround:
Downgrade to a pre-4.8 linux/linux-headers, I used 4.6.5-1
At this point the fglrx driver won't rebuild because of pie defaulting to on by default in gcc 6.
Downgrade to gcc/gcc-libs 5.3
Rebuild fglrx (catalyst-hook)

At this point startx works for me, though the outdated GLIBCXX causes a number of programs to fail. If you managed to disable pie for the fglrx rebuild you could probably get it working with a newer gcc.

Thanks AwesomeHaircut.
Part at below seems to show the problem. For now I don't know how to bite it, but it brings more info than I ever had on this topic. Will make some research, any help will be appriciated.

You'd think after doing this so many times I could do it without the wiki but nope. Still a bit much.
The driver behaves the same way with Linux 4.10 and Linux-LTS 4.9.

I haven't gotten this driver working ever though so idk.


Hey thanks a lot for the work Vi0L0, really appreciate it! :D

Kutabe commented on 2017-04-07 01:16

I have the same issue as AwesomeHaircut with catalyst-hd234k
I've installed packages from repo
Here is what I've done
Xorg.0.log is empty, I'll add
- journalctl -b
- dmesg

Vi0L0 commented on 2017-04-03 19:03

If you won't have luck could you paste on some pastebin?:
- Xorg.0.log
- try to run startx and note what it returns
- dmesg
- journalctl -b

AwesomeHaircut commented on 2017-04-03 03:40

I got to where it was all installed and configured but when I started X it gave me a black screen and unresponsive keyboard. ssh worked though so that saved some reboots. I ended up going back to the open source driver for work but I do plan to give it another shot tomorrow.

I'll try out those other packages thanks!

Vi0L0 commented on 2017-04-02 16:41

@AwesomeHaircut: also did this package work for you?
I'm asking because I don't have confirmation.
Also please note that to run it in post-libglvnd era you have to use pre-libglvnd mesa's packages, you can find it ie in [catalyst] repo.
I am planning to also paste it in [catalyst-hd234k] repo
Edit: I also created non-libglvnd packages: mesa-noglvnd and lib32-mesa-noglvnd groups
(tho on AUR it comes with *mesa-libgl* packages which should be avoid by catalyst users, I left it there for package base to be more "general")
